We all knew that the announcement was coming.  Khalan Laborn, the number one ranked player in the state of Virginia, committed to Florida State.  He did more than commit to Florida State. He rode in a Lamborghini emblazoned with the F.S.U. logo. Check out the insane video:

As crazy as the video is, the bottom line is that Virginia Tech lost the best player in the state. The Hokies were apparently in the mix with F.S.U., Auburn, and North Carolina. Don't get me wrong, it's great to be in the hunt, but we need to finish. It feels terrible to see all the 4-5* kids leaving the state to play elsewhere. We've had the star system debate on our site countless times, but we need some of them to win. We were somewhat of a longshot to sign Laborn, but he could have been a cornerstone for the 2017 class.
